ON THE GREEN: TWO-DAY SNOWSTORM NEARS

Liquid-brine prep work for an expected snowstorm left some artistic designs on the pavement in Fair Haven Saturday.

The Greater Red Bank Green could see accumulations of between 7 and 14 inches of snow in a storm expected to begin Sunday afternoon and continue into Tuesday morning, according to the National Weather Service

Along with winds gusting up to 40 miles per hour and threats of power outages and coastal flooding, road travel is expected to be “difficult to impossible,” the NWS says.

Red Bank’s government has issued a parking alert; see below, along with the extended forecast for the region below. (Photos by John T. Ward. Click to enlarge.)

Here’s an excerpt fromRed Bank’s alert:

As always, per municipal ordinances, an on-street parking prohibition exists on all roads in the event of snow accumulation to allow for plowing and the passage of emergency vehicles. Vehicles parked in the streets may be ticketed and/or towed. Residents without driveways/garages may park vehicles in the East Side Municipal Parking Lots (Mechanic Street & Wallace Street) & Count Basie Fields Parking Lot.  Property owners must clear their sidewalks within 24 hours after the conclusion of snow fall.  Do not plow, blow or shovel snow into the streets.
